A member asked:
if colonoscopy results come back as normal but prep was fair, would it be logical to return for another colonoscopy? how soon afterwards?

Not unless the: gastroenterologist says you need one. He may have been able to visualize your whole colon even though the prep was fair. Ask him..

Depends on: your age and any additional risk factors, such as family history of colon cancer and personal history of colitis. Ask your gi specialist for specific advice. If there are no other risk factors, your doctor would probably recommend repeat in 5 to 10 years.
